How's Your Bullshit Detector? | The Smirking Chimp

"As I see it, the best things schools can do for kids is to help them learn how to distinguish useful talk from bullshit. I will ask only that you agree that every day in almost every way people are exposed to more bullshit than it is healthy for them to endure, and that if we can help them to recognize this fact, they might turn away from it and toward language that might do them some earthly good."

5 Great Keyword Research Tools That Are Cheaper than Ramen Noodles | BlueGlass

5 Great Keyword Research Tools That Are Cheaper than Ramen Noodles | BlueGlass | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Destiny Cushing, a buddying SEO blogger at Blueglass.com has put together a valuable showcase of five different and little known keyword research tools.

Beyond Google’s Keyword Tool, Wordtracker, SEO Book’s Keyword Suggestion Tool, and Keyword Discovery there is indeed a little universe of alternative possibilities.

 

And among the many, these five were selected on the basis of three very specific requirements:

 

a) the tool has to be free

b) it must be immediately useful, and

c) it must provide something you can’t get with the full-service tools (they offer additional insights and ways to manipulate your keyword lists that the other tools don’t offer. And for free.)

 

Here their names.

See if you have heard about them before diving in:

 

- Übersuggest – Alphabet Keyword Suggestion Tool 

- Soovle – Keyword Suggestions from 7 Search Engines

- Ranks.nl – Keyword Combiner

- Yahoo! Search Clues – Trend Analysis

- YouTube Keyword Tool

 

Superuseful. 9/10.

4 Steps to Establish a Social Listening Strategy | Social Media Examiner

4 Steps to Establish a Social Listening Strategy | Social Media Examiner | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Another high-quality share and summary by  Giuseppe Mauriello:

Social analytics starts with listening. The future is all about hearing what your business ecosystem (customers, business partners, constituencies, employees, etc.) has to say and collaborating internally and externally to meet their expectations.

 

#1: Determine your target audience:

Once an organization has determined whom to target, it’s critical to understand where to engage them online. A common misperception is that all social networks are the same and therefore everyone is on the same platform.

 

#2: Identify the influencers:

A research report found that the type of people who follow or friend you are more important than the numbers. Through social analytics, an organization can determine which individuals are sharing content and links and their sentiment about it.

 

#3: Know the keywords and trends:

Determine the topics that are important to your business and identify them as potential keywords. Then through listening, establish if that is the language your audience is interested in.

 

#4: Form a social business strategy:

Relevancy and reputation management should be part of the goals.
